Good day po!

I would like to ask po. I was terminated due to just cause. AWOL kasi po ako for 2 weeks, they served NTE but I was not able to comply with it. I don't want to dig deeper for now with the reasons. I would like to know lang muna if am I still entitled for a prorated 13th month? Since from January to April 18 2014 ang work ko. But I was finally terminated May 5, 2014. But I was employed since August 8, 2013.

I'm on a hearing with DOLE right now for money claims regarding Night Differential, Legal Holiday pay, etc.. But DOLE mentioned that I won't be getting a separation pay which I understand since termination was for just cause. And DOLE mentioned also that there will be no prorated 13th month even for some of my colleagues who resigned immediately without notice.

Please advise if we are still entitled for 13th month and if we can demand that on our next hearing at DOLE with the employer.\

Our last hearing and quit claim will be on the 14th. I want to know if we're entitled so we can add that to our claims. Please help.

Thanks. More power!

As long as you were employed for at least 1 month in the year, you should receive it.

Paid vacation leaves? Yes - no additional payment since you did not work on those holidays.

You only get paid additional for legal holidays if you work on those days.
